Jerry Sandusky will spend the rest of his natural life in prison for molesting and assaulting numerous boys over a 15-year period, all met via his Second Mile foundation. The day he was sentenced, Pennsylvania’s State Employees’ Retirement Board cut off his sizable pension from his years of service at Penn State. Today, a court gave it back.
Sandusky will again receive the $4,900 a month he has gotten since retiring in 1999, including back payments and interest from the three years since his conviction. No one disputes what Sandusky did, but the legal question is whether his actions took place while he was working for Penn State.
